Thursday, Governor Ron DeSantis (R-FL) visited the Monoclonal Antibody Response Unit in Jacksonville, Florida to promote treatments such as Regeneron, as the nation experiences a surge in COVID-19 cases.
Governor DeSantis began by promoting the success of the COVID-19 vaccine. He pointed out his administration’s success in distributing the COVID-19 vaccine, stating that Florida is the most vaccinated state in the Southeast United States with over 80% of seniors having been vaccinated. DeSantis went on to say the data suggests that those who have been vaccinated, if infected, are less likely to be hospitalized compared to the unvaccianted.
Governor DeSantis continued stating that we are seeing a nationwide surge in COVID-19 cases among both the vaccinated and unvaccinated. In response to this surge DeSantis promoted a Monoclonal Antibody Treatment called Regeneron. In clinical trials this treatment has been shown to reduce an infected person’s chance of being hospitalized by 70%.
Governor DeSantis concluded by announcing that he is deploying a COVID-19 rapid response unit to deliver Regeneron Monoclonal Antibody Treatments to Floridians, “What we are going to be doing here today is deploying a rapid response unit. This will start at noon, we will be able to deliver Regeneron Monoclonal Antibody treatments to folks.”
